Why Do You Wear Makeup Tag!

Hey loves! I have another tag post today! I just love tags! They're so much fun and a great way to get to know one another! The lovely Justina of Justina Who... tagged me in this one! If you haven't checked out her blog before you should definitely do so! She is such a sweetheart and you will learn tons of amazing tips and tricks from her!


1. When did you begin loving makeup?
I was actually older than most starting out with makeup. I was 20! My parents never allowed us to wear makeup (we couldn't even wear nail polish unless it was clear or very very light sheer pink!) so I never owned any until I got older. My first experience with makeup was for my senior pics in high school. My mom took me to Macy's and we went to the makeup counter. We ended up getting a few products from Lancome. I think it was just blush and mascara. I don't think I even ended up using them in my pics. Once I got to college I began to experiment with it more, but still not a lot. My senior year of college I began taking a stage makeup course. I was a theatre minor and it was part of my program. I was the only girl that did not know how to put on eyeliner and mascara. It was embarrassing. I began to watch YouTube videos to learn so that I could keep up in class. Once I started watching those videos I was hooked! A few months later I went to Ulta and began my makeup collection! (Sorry that was so long!)

Bloglovin Help

Hey dolls! Funny story...I've been giving you all the wrong Bloglovin link! The one I've been giving you has my old url (www.neyavbeautytalk.blogspot.com). The one that I was supposed to give you has my current url (www.neyavbeautytalk.com). I'm not sure if it makes a difference or not, but if you could all do me a huge favor and follow the correct link I'd really appreciate it! Thanks loves!

Lush Lip Scrub Review

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
 Hey loves! I have another review for you today. I want to tell you about this lip scrub that I got from Lush. I work at a mall part-time and like to walk around on my break. I always walk by lush, but I've never actually stopped in went inside. I didn't really know what it was and wasn't too interested in going in. One day I was searching online for recipes to lip scrubs. Someone I follow on Instagram had posted one last year, but she didn't give measurements with it. So when I tried to make it I couldn't figure out the correct consistency and it didn't work out very well.

suki® exfoliate foaming cleanser review

Hey loves! I'm really excited to share this review with you! I got this little gem in my June Birchbox and fell in love with it instantly! This exfoliate has been wonderful to my skin. 
I have trouble with dry spots around my nose. It gets really frustrating and can be embarrassing. No matter how much moisturizer I used it just didn't help anything. I tried using different facial scrubs and those didn't seem to work either. When I received the suki® exfoliate I didn't think it would be any different. In fact, I was planning a trip to the dermatologist. 
Sorry for the gross pic, but it was necessary for the review!

I went ahead and began to use the suki® exfoliate simply because it was new and I loved the smell. I'm so happy that I gave it a try!

When I got there it was not what I was expecting.The description for the event said that their would be beauty advisors and samples. Yeah, I didn't really see any of that. There was a table set up with all of the products on it.

A Look Ahead and Birthday Weekend

Hey loves! I'm so sorry I haven't posted this week. I've been so busy and haven't had time to work on my blog. I have several posts lined up, but I haven't had time to take the photos or make the videos for them yet. I am off of work this weekend so I'll spend it taking stock photos and filming so that I can get new content out to you next week! I did what to let you know what you can expect from me this month!

I have some reviews for you: Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, Benefit Flawless Foundation, Ipsy, and Birchbox. And if I get brave I will be filming my first tutorial for you! 

In the meantime, here are a couple of pics from my b-day weekend! Hubby took me to an apple orchard! It was fun! We got on the wagon ride and picked a pumpkin! I know others took pics at dinner, but they haven't put them up yet. Once they do I'll add them here!

Camera and Lighting Issues Addressed

Hey loves! I just wanted to take a moment to address my lighting and camera issues. I know I keep saying in my videos that I'm working on it, but nothing has changed yet. I don't want you ladies to think that I'm just going to keep saying that without actually making any changes. So here's the background on why it's the way it is now and why it hasn't changed.

If you've ever read any posts on my other blog you may know a bit of this. In May of 2012 I graduated from college. In June of 2012 I got married. And in July of 2012 I moved to Virginia from Michigan. My husband is in the Army Reserves and his unit was in Virginia which is why we made the move. Within a month of us being there he got called to Active Duty to go to the Basic Officer Leadership Course (BOLC). We had only been there for a month and had not found full time jobs yet and we didn't have a lot of money saved up. I couldn't go with him to training and we only had one car so I ended up going back to Michigan and staying with my parents for the duration of his training (4.5 months). We put all of our belongings in storage, packed up our car, and got on the road.

Bare Face Cleansing Oil Review

Hey there! I recently received this Bare Face Cleansing Oil in my September Julep Maven Box. In case you don't know, Julep is a monthly nail subscription box. For $19.99 a month they will send you a nail polish set based off of your Maven profile. If you don't want to receive a box you can skip the month or gift it to a friend. Oh and shipping is free for Mavens! If you're a nail polish junkie this just might be the perfect subscription for you!

I was a little skeptical when I received this cleansing oil in my box. I thought it didn't really fit the box since I got nail polish, but I was interested in trying it anyways. The product has rosehip seed oil in it. I've never heard of it before but that's no big deal. I've been using this for about 3 weeks now and a little goes a long way.


The directions tell you to pump a liberal amount into your dry hands and to massage it over your dry face. It says that it will dissolve makeup, dirt, and impurities. I was pretty impressed with it. When you first put it on your face will look really oily. I like to put it on right before I hop in the shower before bed and let it sit while I get clean. Then I take my towel and wash it all off. If I'm not showering before bed I will put it on and massage it into my face for a few minutes before washing it off with a warm towel.

Once I wash it off my face feels clean and refreshed. My skin feels soft and smooth. My skin is not oily after using it which is awesome. I also like the smell of it. It smells lemony to me. The thing that impressed me most about this cleansing oil was how well it removed my makeup. I usually have a very hard time removing my mascara (that Benefit They're Real! is a headache to get off!), but this oil took it off with ease! And it didn't irritate my eyes which made it even more perfect!

Final verdict: I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!

What's your favorite makeup remover?
